“Private Tranquility”
Reviewed March 24, 2011 for a stay in October 2010

We stayed at this location recently - the most disappointing thing was having to leave. Buried deep in the heart of the heritage listed Daintree jungle gave us the perfect excuse to switch off our mobile phones and get away from it all.

If you expect to be able to hold teleconference business meetings, then go somewhere else. However if you motto currently is 'I'm stressed & over it. Stop the world, I want to get off!' then this is where you go...

An intimate amazing experience to simply spend time together, and if you're adventurous, explore the jungle sights. It is far from rugged though - dining on the balcony overlooking the private waterfall was one of our favourite areas, same with sitting at the end of the walkway leading up to it with our glasses of champagne & a book while the kids seemed to grow gills and live in the freshwater pond.

Is it the Hilton - no. Will I get Live Fox Sport - no, but there is a selection of DVD's that in all honesty we were far too busy relaxing to even look through. Would I get room service - only if I was particularly nice to my wife beforehand... but then again if I was after those aspects I wouldn't have flown out of Sydney on a family adventure that the kids & us are still talking about.

“Halwyn Daintree Secrets - THE BEST!!”
Reviewed March 22, 2011 for a stay in December 2010

I LOVE Halwyn Daintree Secrets. My partner and I have stayed there twice now and adore the place. There is nowhere else in the Daintree where you'll have so much privacy, beauty and your own private waterfall and swimming hole! No need to fear swimming here, no crocs! Just friendly fish that love a bit of bread ;) You wouldn't want to go swimming anywhere else in my opinion!

If you're worried about bugs and the like, don't. No more bugs here then what you would get going camping...besides, it's the rainforest! You have to expect to be living side by side with a few living creatures.
EVERYTHING is provided for you at Halwyn...it's the perfect blend of nature and comfort (I'm not much of a 'roughing it' type and that's why I love this place)
Outside of the accommodation you can find awesome trail walks, explore high up in the trees with a guided 'sky walk', a great backpackers place 20min up the road that's always bustling with interesting travellers, a butterfly house only 5 min from your doorstep.

There's no shortage of water in the Daintree (something a Melbournian like me is shocked at) Expect a bit of rain, which is seriously not a problem cos it's never really cold in the wet season. Up in the Daintree you have to conserve electricity (something city people don't ever think about) So if you are bringing kids, maybe forget about packing the DS's And PSP's....maybe reintroduce them to nature walks (give them the camera and give them little photographic missions, etc) card games, drawing the scenery. This place is an escape for the whole family so don't sook that there isn't anything to do except for ACTUALLY relax and slow down for a few nights. That's what holidays are supposed to be all about.

I would recommend Halwyn to anyone and everyone. Unfortunately all my friends are poor musicians so they never have the cash to do anything except for eat and buy new guitar strings. If you haven't been to the Daintree, I would highly suggest that you get your butt there asap!

“A Magic Place”
Reviewed March 22, 2011 for a stay in November 2010

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful property with us.

It really is one of the most peaceful and beautiful places I have been to.

We didn't really make it very far and instead just enjoyed sitting on the verandah and swimming in the amazing creek.

After a 3 day stay (next time we will stay longer!), I was able to leave relaxed and calm.
